Toast Coasters

New on are these endearing toast coasters shaped like the popular breakfast staple. They are the perfect addition to any kitchen that embraces a more light-hearted approach to decor, and will definitely make your guests look twice the next time they ask you for a coaster. Designed by the über-talented Anja Stoeckigt of Paper-Tales, the toast-inspired coasters are made of cork, making them as sustainable as they are cute. Commenting on things that make her happy, Anja says, ‘My husband and Nutella rank right up there with some of my favourites, as well as any pretty paper products.’ Beyond her coasters, her impressive range extends to stationery items including notebooks and cards, as well as origami brooches, and a beautifully unique jewellery tree, ideal for displaying your bits and bobs in a more unusual way. The toast coasters come in a set of four (measuring 9.5cm x 9.5cm), priced at R160 from For more information you can email or you can check out the Paper Tales Facebook page.
